Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2009
Rating from an ice cold bottle (thanks to ohmpers recommendation) of Zipfer Ein Mark Glas Heller Freude Original Import secured at Binnys Beverage Depot in Plainfield, Illinois: It pours a very pale yellow body with an initially tall fizy head that rapidly reduces to nothingness. No lace. It has a very light aroma, a bit bready with faint traces of grassy/herbal hops. Watery. Its flavor, also light, is sweet and bready with a grassy, metallic bitterness. Not offensive, but one was enough.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 11, 2009
From a 500mL Can. Crystal clear, pale brassy color with a thick layer of quickly dissipating, fluffy white foam. Clean, bready malt aroma with just a hint of herbal hop character. Light bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel with a crisp, refreshing finish. The malt flavor is clean and light, but has a nice bready quality that tastes like pils malt, and not destroyed by unpleasant adjuncts. If there are adjuncts in this beer, they are used wisely. Finishes dry and clean, with a light lingering hop bitterness left on the palate.

Can. Pours a golden color with a small longlasting white head. Has a malty grainy and bready aroma. Sweetish malty grainy flavor with some bready hints. Has a sweetish malty grainy finish with some bitterness in the aftertaste.

Good. Purchased a single bottle at Mexico Wal-Mart for 23 pesos , lessen 2 dollars, this one had a typical lager aroma, however the palate was surpringly good, corn notes at the beginning kinda sweet and sour at the the end, plenty of a head, good overall

500ml can, bright yellow color, with an off-white head, light pale malt, fruity, floral hop nose, with a mild straw accent, in the aroma follows though on a medium-bodied palate with a yeasty, sweet pale malt, flowery hop character, with a hint of grassiness and leafiness, leading towards a leafy hop bitterness finish.

Sigmund (7230) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2009

judasbeer (431) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 27, 2009
Huge, frothy head with average lacing. Pale straw color. Fresh citrus hops in the aroma. Mild nutty malty base flavor with sipcy hoppy finish. Light to medium bodied with active carbonation. Refreshing summer pilsner.

rosenbergh (11374) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 26, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2009 330 ml bottle. From Germany. Name was Zipfer Original Import. Tastes like a basic pale lager beer. A bit above the average. Quite boring. Well, quite smooth though.

500 ml can. From Wals-Siezenheim, Austria. Clear pale golden colour with small white head. Sweetish aroma with weak maltiness and hoppiness. Flavour is sweet and hoppy. Not too interesting.
